Remember in the history post how I mentioned Kaplan and Zinoviev? I forgot to ask a question that was patently obvious, but very telling;
How many of you knew who Kaplan and Zinoviev were? Another lesson to be learned.
When the pawns are consumed by their own King, they are forgotten.
Orwell called a person like this an unperson.

"Find the King"
One commenter felt that I gave Barry O too much credit. He's a pawn. Find the King, he instructed.
An excellent point that I only briefly touched on in what was already a lengthy essay.
How in the hell did we wind up with Obama as Pres__ent anyway? Quite simply, Hillary is her own cult of personality. But since her campaign for President started in 2000, even the Democrats were sick of her by the time 2008 rolled around. The Democrats saw in Obama, a way to displace Hillary and still claim to be holding to their ideals. So they did.
They replaced one cult of personality with another one that sounded better. But Obama is turning out to be worse than they ever imagined Hillary could be. By the way, is it just me or has every succeeding Democratic party nominee for President been worse than the one before? Carter, Mondale, Dukakis, Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Obama. (Don't remind me about McGovern, I'm on a frickin roll here!)
Now in 2010, even the left is feeling buyer's remorse. What to do? This is where that king comment comes in to provide us another lesson.
The kingmakers who made the mistake of crowning this particular cult of personality will eventually make an even bigger mistake when they displace/replace him with another cult of personality.
You can almost take that to the bank (if it were solvent and the FDIC wasn't already broke. HAHAHAHAAHAHHAHAHAAAAAHAHAAAA!!!!!!!!!! Whew. Deep breath! Sorry, a little doomer humor just snuck up on me there.)
So who is their next cult of personality? Maybe someone just like Obama who appears moderate in his public and private life. Everything's just perfect. The wife and the kids. Family man, no troubles, no scandals, no controversy. A sleeper who's just waiting to awake. In the same mold as Obama, the next COP (sorry, it's time to abbreviate), could be highly groomed to appear to be the most perfect in those areas where there is the most to hide. The occasional flaw and foible indicate humanity. Someone whose image is zero flaws is still human, he's just trying to hide part of it.
Keep in mind that the further they go down this path, of trading in one COP for another, the less room for "buyer's remorse" there will be. The bigger the cult of personality is, the less room they have for dissent, criticism, satire, debate, etc. For all of us, this will translate to an even worse leader. Maybe the problem isn't the kings they keep trotting out, but the kingmakers who crown them.
Those kingmakers need to read and heed the warning. Release a COP big enough to eat all of their enemies and he'll eat them too.
Barry O, The AntiChrist? Seriously? HusseinO isn't even worthy to tie the AntiChrist's shoelaces. It might be said that Barack must decrease so that the AntiChrist can increase. Just saying. Nobody I know wants to bring physical harm to Obama. First it wouldn't help our cause. Second-as previously discussed, the COP to be named later will almost certainly be worse.
But in all that he does, I do believe that he's preparing the way for this AntiChrist.
Unlike John the Baptist though, Obama will argue his own importance and greatness to the COP who will displace/replace him. In that case, though he is his own COP, Obama will truly be just one more pawn in the game. Maybe he should read my warning too.
Remember, it's not a threat. It's not a prediction. It's not a call to action. It's all settled history that has been repeated many times. It has all happened before and will happen again. This time, it will happen to you.
